Lunes (Monday)

Death has no stink…. but Gangrene does. Today marked our first day in the clinic here in the Dominican Republic. This morning we traveled to the city of San Pedro to work in the regional hospital for the east side of the island. The staff was very gracious to allow us to take over the clinic and do the work God has called us to do. We were also blessed to have the opportunity to assist the doctors here in management of diabetic foot wounds. Ashley, our certified wound specialists proved to be an extremely valuable resource in directing our students and caring for these advanced wounds. Many of the students were exposed to wounds with a degree of severity they have never seen before. These experiences proved to be both exciting and saddening at times.

We have also had the blessing of connecting with a doctor from Buffalo, New York named Neil. Neil came to the Dominican to work with other doctors in family and emergency medicine. He has worked closely with our students and therapists to provide a standard of care that these people would otherwise never receive.

God’s work through us in the Dominican Republic has only just begun. Please continue to lift up the mission team and the people in prayer.

Hasta Manana
